Unplug

My graduate ‘Unplug’ was inspired by a smoke tunnel showing future pollution realities in cities. To navigate this space sight could not be utilised, which as a society we highly depend on. This inspired the collection to look into the senses other than sight with the underlying theme of sustainability and handcraft. The first outfit features Organic cotton fleece trousers with seam pleating, embroidery and embossing (touch), Organic cotton shirt with screen-printed hands & acrylic buttons (sight), recycled yarn made from salvage donated by Lochcarron of Scotland and hand knitted (touch) and upcycled laser cut acrylic mirror bodice (sound). A fragrance was crafted to echo (smell).
